Artist Opp-Hands On Altanta-Check it Out

Hands On Atlanta is a non-profit organization that helps individuals, families and corporate and community groups find flexible volunteer opportunities at more than 400 service organizations and schools.

Hands On Atlanta, is celebrating its 20th anniversary with a special event June 19, at the DeFoor Centre. To commemorate the occasion, Hands On Atlanta is asking artists to contribute artwork inspired by the handprint in its logo. There are no rules about the art – it could be a painting, sculpture etc. The artwork will be displayed at the event and used in an auction to raise funds for Hands On Atlanta.

For the artist -- two tickets the event and a receipt for a tax deductible contribution. The event includes a birthday cake decorating contest from 2 – 5 and a gala birthday bash that starts at 7. Participating artists can come to the entire event or any portion.

Please contact me if you would like to participate: Ray Harbour,, 404 547 711, Ray Harbour on Facebook. I need an artist statement or bio and description of the artwork by June 14. The artwork needs to be at the Defoor Centre by Wednesday, June 16. We expect a couple hundred people to attend the event.

Best regards,
Ray Harbour
